Went to The Countrymans for my wife's 60th birthday and we had two very tasty meals and battered mushroom starters. We will definitely visit again when hopefully Scampi will be back on the menu.

Really enjoyed a lovely lunch here on Thursday. Excellent choice & reasonably priced menu. Easy access for anyone like myself who is disabled. Would not hesitate to go back or recommend.
